Former Estacado player, coach resigns from Midland Lee

MIDLAND, TX (KCBD) -

Former Estacado baseball player, coach Hector Limon resigned his post as Midland Lee head coach Monday for "family reasons." The Rebels made the 3-A baseball playoffs in each of Limon's two seasons and won District 3-5A in 2011.

Limon spent the previous seasons at Plainview, Levelland, and Lubbock Estacado(where, in 2010, he guided the Matadors to their first 3A State Tournament appearance since 1982).

Midland Lee football coach James Morton said he was sad to see Limon have to leave the Rebel program.

"He was a very good baseball coach," said Morton. "He ran a tight ship, was very disciplined, took pride in his work...I think he made that team better."

Limon leaves Midland Lee to take a teaching role at Plainview High School after racking up over 300 wins in 17 seasons as a head coach.
